Germany vs. Japan Prediction

Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for Germany vs. Japan | Group Stage, World Cup Qatar 2022

  • Where: Khalifa International Stadium, Doha, Qatar
  • When: Monday, September 23, 4 pm local time

Germany has been without notable success on the international stage for a long time. Die Mannschaft wants to change that in Qatar, and the first step towards glory is Japan. Though we’ve seen the Samurai performing well in the last few months, and they have to be respected, even though the German star power is at a higher level than theirs. Timo Werner is injured, and the Germans took off for Qatar without him, which was kind of a last-minute blow for Hansi Flick.

Germany vs. Japan Preview

Germany

Die Mannschaft had one loss in the last 10 games, but they posted four wins also, with five draws. Their record in the UEFA Nations League has been pretty disappointing, winning and losing one event and having four draws. It’s why they finished third in that group.

The defense was a problem during the UNL because Germany couldn’t keep a clean sheet throughout this competition. Flick rotated several players and wanted to see their abilities before the WC. Still, the impression is that the former Bayern Munich head coach will have certain problems tightening up the situation in this area.

In the past seven games, six were with both teams netting, and that’s a pattern in Germany’s performances we’ve seen for quite some time now. 

Japan

The Samurais are in their prime year, that is, the top players and the starters are now between 25 and 30 years. Pretty much all of them are playing in Europe, the majority in the German teams, so they know the upcoming opponents very well.

The Bundesliga style of play is suitable for the Japanese, and the national team plays in the same rhythm, with high intensity, lots of paces, and aggressiveness all over the field. We need to admit that the Japanese team is a bit defensive-oriented and waits to strike from the counter-attack, and lately, that strategy has been working well for them.

In the past five events, the Japanese team didn’t allow a single goal, and before that, we’ve seen them resisting Japan in a friendly international game, and losing only 0-1.

Germany vs. Japan Head-to-Head Games

The last meeting between these two sides was in 2006, before the World Cup in Germany, and back then, the game ended without winners, 2-2. 

Germany vs. Japan Prediction

The Germans like to play against the teams like Japan, who accept high intensity. German players are physically stronger than Japanese rivals, who are faster. When looking at the overall configuration of these two units, Germany should win without any trouble. 

Our verdict: Germany wins
